Jumeirah Open Beach information
Lonely Planet review
Also known as Russian Beach because of its popularity with Russian tourists, this stretch of white sand is paralleled by a paved path popular with strollers, joggers, inline skaters and cyclists. Alas, on Fridays it teems with off-duty male guest workers keen on ogling bikini beauties. Although you probably won’t get physically accosted, women may feel more comfortable further south at Jumeirah Beach Park. Showers, toilets and kiosks are available.
